Verizon is likely to owe Apple $14 Billion

Offline voice dictation for iOS



Apple is following Android’s experience of installing offline voice dictation programs. Nowadays, California-based company is carrying out tests of this version for iOS.

Before Apple’s voice-to-text function required Internet connection. It made the process slow and out-of-date. The system uploaded a recording to a converter and then downloaded the text version to the device.
